  • Futures hold losses after jobs number  [View news story]
    Futures tanking because the jobs report doesn't give the Fed a reason to NOT hike rates.

    Not that this means they will...

  • Stocks back in retreat mode  [View news story]
    Rule 48 invoked at NYSE for today.

    Dow -430
    VIX 30
    WTI Crude 47ish

    Looks awful. Be careful buying extreme dips this AM, liquidity may evaporate and pricing mechanism's break down if HFT's step away from this possible train wreck.

    Your graph on the front page at 4:05 showed this:

    DJIA ETF DIA -0.57%
    S&P 500 ETF SPY -0.70%
    Nasdaq ETF QQQ -1.06%

    Are you sure your numbers are right?

  • U.S. stocks poised for big breakout  [View news story]
    It's pretty simple really.
    HFT's "step aside" during extreme market volatility, markets go bid-less and flash crash, HFT's step back in and buy at flash crash lows then sell milli-seconds later when the flash crash recovers. Oh, and during the flash crashing while they are supposedly off-line, they front-run all the buy orders too.
    You say it sounds illegal? Don't worry, in 4-5 years when they have developed "Screw Everyone Version 5 software", the SEC will outlaw the current version 1.
    For a better explanation of this, go visit the experts at Nanex.

  • At the open  [View news story]
    Felt like somebody cut the elevator cable there for a few minutes at the open...That feeling of free-falling with no end in sight.
    Understand that although the markets open at 9:30, not all stocks are ready to be traded exactly at 9:30, so those -20% breathtaking moves in some stocks were trades with what portion of those stocks were available at that time.

  • Averages suffer worst week since 2011  [View news story]
    If this is really a correction (or worse), then this can't be the bottom yet - too many people haven't had their eyeballs ripped out and are itching to get back in. You'll know there has been a correction when after it nobody does nothing, then the smart money dips a toe in and everyone follows, slowly at first, then in a mad rush.

  • Surprising Market Probabilities Of $10 Oil, $100 Oil And More  [View article]
    You mean someone is making a lot of money on gasoline...not the same thing as making money on oil.
    Plus refineries are still making summer blend which costs more to make than winter blend.
    Plus in some area's refineries have been down for repairs, driving up the price in those area's.
    What you pay at the pump does not necessarily have to be what you perceive as a "fair" price.
